Gamay is typically not something you will find in my wine cellar. Nor are you likely to see me drinking a young Pinot Noir, as I prefer them older. However, lately my take on Pinot and Gamay (that is reminiscent of Pinot, but makes for a lighter and fruitier wine) has changed, after I started pairing them with Cantonese food. In this video, I pair the super interesting and intense Edmunds St. John's Gamay with General Tso's Chicken -- oooh yummeeee!
Edmunds St. John "Bone-Jolly" Gamay Noir 2007 Eldorado County - $16.
Home-made General Tso's Chicken - $5.
Gamay + Cantonese food pairing - priceless!
